A: This is a woven roller cover. You have mentioned a knit, which we do offer; however, a knit is more of a production roller cover. It is known to pick up and release the most paint thus covering more area quickly. While the woven does also offer good pick up and release, it's real claim to fame is providing the smoothest finish. This 1/4" Wooster Pro Woven roller cover would be a good choice for a smooth surface and would provide a smooth finish. We would suggest this over the knit if looking for the smoothest finish. Wooster Customer Service is also always available to help at 800-392-7246.
A: Roller materials will hold up to solvent based products. I would suggest prestaining all materials on all surfaces prior to deck construction to get the best performance from Doug fir. Recoat exposed surfaces after building. If your stain is pigmented you might want to brush it out after applying with the roller for more even tone.
A: Yes, the Wooster Pro Woven roller cover can be used to apply oil stain on a deck. Wooster Customer Service is also always available to answer any questions or concerns at 800-392-7246.
A: We always recommend checking your coating for their recommended applicator. That being said, the Wooster Pro Woven is a lint-free cover and would be a good choice for applying polyurethane. Some painter's prefer to use a wool cover due to their natural shed-resistance. You might also want to consider the 9" x 3/8" High-Density Wool roller cover (see product #304932319). Wooster Customer Service is always available for any assistance needed at 800-392-7246.
A: To properly get into the grooves of the ceiling, you will want a larger nap roller cover. We would suggest a 3/4" to 1 1/4" roller cover based on the depth of the groove. The deeper the groove, the larger the nap should be on your roller cover used. If you would like the smoothest possible finish, we would recommend a woven roller cover (see product # 304243536). This item is available online, but not in stores. If the highest production is the the most important, you might consider a knit option like the Wooster Pro Surpass 3/4" (see product #300851694). The Surpass will provide a excellent coverage and production. We also always welcome calls to Wooster Customer Service at 800-392-7246. We would be happy to help with choose the perfect applicator for your project.
